* Ca. 100,000 students of German attend courses at our institutes in Germany and abroad each year. We also support teachers in their work.

* We also stock a wide range of books, magazines, games and documentaries on Germany, supplemented by various online services we produce and maintain ourselves.
* Ca. 1,500 foreign guests per annum take part in highly-qualified study and contact trips to Germany run by our visitors service.
* The Goethe Forum in Munich brings world culture to Germany, thus encouraging the international cultural debate.
